Native American influence is evident in this large ceramic platter in earthy neutrals and blues. The “feathered” textural pattern with its focal-point center creates a dreamcatcher-like quality. Designed for wall display or stand, it captures the eye wherever it is placed.

degree as well as a Bachelor of Science degree from
The University of Wisconsin-Stout in 2002. He also

Strongly defined structure, composition, and space
define the framework of Ryan’s vessels. Repeated
patterns accentuate the volume in his pieces while
sensitivity to the glazing process preserves their
essence. Ryan has participated in numerous national
juried exhibitions and invitational shows since 2000,
and his work is represented in galleries throughout the
country. Ryan is a practicing studio potter and lecturer
at the University of Pennsylvania.
